View Full Version : MC registration point

05-23-2004, 02:16 AM
Does anyone know why some MC's have registration points limited to top left and middle only? I tried modifying with ctrl-i (info) and all options are grayed out except top left and middle. Also tried modifying with free transform tool, which does allow me to drag the registration point, however nothing changes after I applied the transformation. Thanks.

ps. The MC i am modifying is nested within several clips, but I really doubt the parent clips' registration points have any effect on this.

As far as actionscript is concerned, the registration point cannot be modified by using ctrl-i or the free transform tool. I admit that flash is rather confusing in that aspect on first glance, but you'll get used to it.

To truly modify the registration point you'll need to go into your MC and move the elements inside relative to the 0,0 point (which is it's registration). If you have a lot of animation inside the movieclip use the 'Modify Multiple Frames' (think that's what it's called...you'll find it), extend the range to cover the whole timeline, and select everything and move it like that ^_^
